Each year, millions of drivers make their way across our vast Kentucky roadways. It’s essential to understand that there are certain highways and intersections within Kentucky that are considered to be the most dangerous. Driving safely should always be the biggest concern when you step behind the wheel. If you find yourself routinely driving across any of these highways, you should take extra precautions to help prevent an accident.
Martha Layne Collins Bluegrass Parkway, better known as Bluegrass Parkway, is a road that begins at I-65 and goes all the way down to US-60, from West to East. This route is a popular shortcut for many. Because Bluegrass Parkway is often used to avoid traffic from popular city roads, there is an increased accident risk.
Our very own I-65 is consistently ranked as one of the most dangerous highways in the US. This interstate has a high fatality rate, which is why it continually ranks among the most dangerous highways in the nation. Statistically speaking, those involved in an accident are three times more likely to be involved in a catastrophic accident on I-65, when compared to other interstates within the State. Many experts believe that high speeds, an increased number of semi-trucks, and constant construction may be to blame.
I-75 begins in Northern Kentucky with Williamsburg and makes its way down into Tennessee. Because this interstate connects different states, many of the accidents involve individuals from other states. Being unfamiliar with road conditions is a very common reason that accidents occur. Many times, people who are unfamiliar with traffic patterns tend to have to make quick adjustments behind the wheel, which can lead to an accident.
